Merging Multiple Apache Access Logs Into One Overall Access Log

Merging Multiple Apache Access Logs Into One Overall Access Log

Let's assume you have a web application that runs of a cluster of Apache nodes. Each node generates its own Apache access log from which you can generate page view statistics with tools such as Webalizer or AWStats. Obviously you do not want to have page view statistics for each Apache node, but overall page view statistics. To achieve this, we must merge the access logs from each node into one overall access log that we can then feed into Webalizer or AWstats. There is a Perl script called logresolvemerge.pl (part of the AWStats package) that can do this for us.
